And yet you find less wrong with obama in that regard? The person that can’t even speak without a teleprompter!
Please excuse me while I bang my head against the wall. ….. it will dull the pain….
Something tells me you have already made up your mind long before obama’s challenger was picked. You are just looking for any excuse to justify your
choice, no mater how illogical that excuse may be..
The problem is, there is no one in existence that is truly perfect. We are all flawed to a large degree. The first thing you learn when dealing with
other people is, everyone has baggage. A person that acts like they don’t is the one that is hiding the most. A person that tries to act like he is
perfect (obama) is just acting, nothing more, nothing less. Everything he says is prescreened, and edited before time. He tries to create a pristine
public image, and it fools people into believing he is truly perfect, or close to it. So, in comparison, anyone that doesn’t try to portray that
image is, in your mind, is stupid.
You will find no one on this planet that is educated in everything. No mater how smart someone is, you will find certain things that they do not know,
or have never had to deal with, no mater how obvious the answer seems to you. The person that wants to believe those people are stupid will use those
things to mock them, while ignoring all the other stuff they have done in life.
There is no truly competent person that will live up to your standards. The only ones you will find that meet your description, is people that are
lying to you.
I prefer someone that will talk to you as an equal. Someone that will admit they don’t know everything. Someone that will admit their mistakes.
What we need now is not an airplane engineer, or even someone experienced with flying on passenger planes. What we need is a business man that knows
how to make the ends meet, or can tell when those ends won’t meet, and cut the losses while there is still time. His ability to be a great public
speaker is unneeded, and unwanted as far as I am concerned.
I, myself, am sick and tired of well polished talking figureheads. I would much rather have the local mechanic with a horrible southern accent as
president than live through another four years of the well spoken idiot we have now.
I just want someone who is blunt, honest and truthful. I will welcome them, and their baggage, what ever that baggage may be. I just want someone who
can have a chance of fixing the problem, instead of ignoring it, and making it worse. Above all, I want someone who will tell me the truth. I want him
to tell me what he is truly thinking. I don’t care if it’s wrong. If it’s wrong, I would prefer to know what he is thinking is wrong, instead of
him just telling me what he thinks I want to hear, so that I will think everything is just peachy, when it’s not.
